Grandmaster of the Grand Orient: "We Are Transparent Just Like Pope Francis"

The New Cathedral of the Diocese of Crèteil (Paris): "A
Cathedral for the World of Today"

(Rome) Freemasonry "has reached its all-time high," and this has been achieved recently, said the Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy, '''thanks' to a part of the Church, which does not speak the spiritual language of the Church," said Traditio Catholica .  Traditio Catholica began an article about Freemasonry today with these words. A small, shorthand note, which stains a connection  from the Villa Vascello, the seat of the Grand Orient in Rome, to  the new cathedral of Créteil, near Paris.
"The question of the relationship of Church and Loge is still an issue, because who among the university-educated or in a certain position does not have a relative or a friend who attended a Masonic lodge?" says Traditio Catholica .

What influence did and has Freemasonry on important decisions in the world and Church?

There are also unresolved questions to which there may never be a real answer. About the question, "What influence has the Freemasonry in the last 250 years on certain political decisions of individual states and peoples, but also of world-historical importance." The issue concerns not only politics, but also the Church.

"In Church circles a long litany has been heard: In the Church this or that does not fit: The culprit is Freemasonry! Inside the Church is this and that has happened: The culprit is Freemasonry!"
"Intrigue and conspire do the lodge brothers still," against this or that cardinal or against this or that religious? Or hear that about a dark past?
Freemasonry should not be a welcome "scapegoat" for its own fault or even "relieve clergy and laity in a cheap way of their own responsibilities."
Fact is that Freemasonry changed strategy and tactics over time, and has adapted to the prevailing political power relations, "their fight against the Church, the revelation of God and to the truth about man but has never been given up."

Those who stand in the dark

Freemasons of the Grand Orient of Italy
What has remained constant is their actions out of the darkness. The aproned brothers show up today openly in some areas. They show themselves but only what they want. "They will not show their hand." Not even in France, where they are highly  officially invited on record to the palaces of power and asked for their opinion. "The positions  they are taking on specific issues, they also make publicly known. But what influence they exert in these questions on a decision remains hidden.  It starts already with the unanswerable question of who belongs among the deputies of Parliament and members of a government to a Loge, perhaps even the head of state himself." The same is true of media owners and media professionals.
"The lodges rarely sought direct confrontation with the Church." With careful aim,  they have only fought  in some Latin countries of Europe and Latin America, and even then only if they held the power of the state firmly in their hand, as in France, Italy and Mexico.

Church and the French Revolution - Who makes common cause with the Jacobins?

"A   face to face struggle today is also no longer necessary, as a part of the Church has taken their views and hardly is able to define a substantive difference."
The French Revolution was the great landmark, which the lodges have rammed into the earth of world history. The question of the relationship between Church and French Revolution is synonymous with the question of the relationship between Church and lodge. The influence of the lodges can be seen from the answer to the question to what extent the Jacobin ideas of this revolution are accepted or not. One can confidently say that they form the doctrine of the current world.
"The Church opposes the anti-Christian ideas and does so even today. But for Catholics, and especially religious leaders a litmus test applies: How do I keep it  within the French Revolution?"
At all times there were parts of the church who were inclined towards the secular power. "Power is attractive, power is threatening. The reasons are many. The Church therefore had to endure tough fights to preserve  inner freedom and not as a state Church, namely equipped with privileges to must be subservient to those in power.

"How many divisions has the Pope?" - Cardinal Martini's poisoned legacy

Carlo Maria Cardinal Martini: "Church is 200 years behind the times"
"The policy of appeasement  is affected by sympathizers of secular ideologies, profiteers, but also the great multitude who are afraid of  conflict. The secular power is always stronger than the Church by worldly standards, not only in the sense of the equally rhetorical as much as cynical question of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, "How many divisions has the Pope?" That was 1945 in Yalta and it wasn't, believe it or not, about anything less than the determination of the post-war order by the victors. "
So, there have been since the days of the revolution parts of the church,  "which want to come to terms with the Jacobins." The ideologically attuned  even consider it the crucial question per se for the future of the Church. The Arrangement was so important to this part of the Church  that the  Archbishop of Milan, deceased in 2012, and Cardinal of the Roman Church, Carlo Maria Martini, in his last interview left his "spiritual testament." Literally the cardinal told the Corriere della Sera : "The Church is 200 years behind the times" and meant that she had not taken part in the development initiated by the French revolution.  Cardinal Martini had made ​​his decision and encouraged other Catholics in it to do the same.   A step, which he even called upon the Church, to bring it up once more into 'harmony' with the world. A poisoned legacy."
Some Catholics would agonize their brains over "whether this or that Church officials were  Freemasons or not." In fact, there were quite a few aproned clerics in the history. Already years before the outbreak of the revolution in Paris in the Benedictine Abbey of Melk, the Austrian Escorial, an active Masonic Lodge. The Convention was divided: there were monks and masons. The former, of course, did not know who were the latter. Overall, the number of Church lodge brothers had  remained modest at all times.
The  sociologist of religion Massimo Introvigne, an expert on Freemasonry, gave a key to probatively difficult questions of how to recognize the mason. Since membership is subject to strict secrecy and the Loge brothers have had rich experience of it after 300 years, it is crucial to ask then, who represents Masonic positions and who does not. Whether aproned Freemasons or unaproned (unofficial) the spirit in any case. You know  whose side they're on.

Grand Master of the Grand Orient, "We are as transparent as Pope Francis"

Stefano Bisi, Grand Master of the Grand Orient
In an interview in March 2014, shortly after his election as Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy,  the journalist Stefano Bisi, said about the Masons: "We are as transparent as Pope Francis." It was "hard to believe", but "many young" would "knock on the door of the temple", because they "also  need spirituality today."
Bisi was asked why anyone should feel the need today to become Freemasons. His answer: "Perhaps because there is a need to regain some spiritual values. I am aware that it is difficult for a profane to believe, but when we go to work in the lodge, we enter a house, put on an apron and pulling on gloves, ignite three candles and speak one after another. One speaks, the others listen. In a world in which you have to shout in order to be heard, this is a revolutionary thing. Where that happens otherwise?I n my opinion, people need spirituality, even today."
He continued: "In the lodge you will find everything a little, that's the best part: entrepreneurs, employees, students ... In the lodge we are all equal. Whether one comes from a family with Masonic tradition or not, just like me. "

Grandmaster: Highest Level of Members Achieved - "We are working for the good of humanity"

Villa Vascello, seat of the Grand Orient in Roma
For two weeks, the Grand Orient of Italy has put up a new website. "We have modernized ourselves," said Grandmaster Bisi a few days ago . The Grand Orient of Italy is the largest Masonic organization on the Apennine Peninsula. "We have more than 22,500 brothers, this stands as the highest ever in our history." An ascending trend. In just the first three months of 2015 have been placed 800 membership applications. We had 40 percent more than the average for the past ten years. "These are respectable figures," because one can not simply apply at the lodges for membership. Membership applications were presented only after a "long way" by other brothers.
Although the Grand Orient has no Facebook page, it already twitters. "Even with 140 attacks one can be introduced to the knowledge of the free masons," said Bisi, because: "The real Freemasonry is not forged in  dark intrigues, but is working for the good of humanity." The Grand Master also said that the Grand Orient has "never" been a secret organization.
The Grand Orient  celebrated on 19 September in the Villa Il Vascello, in the Roman Janiculum, the autumn equinox.  On the hill is also an equestrian statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi. The lodge brothers have erected a bronze monument of their Grandmaster and do not forget to look at him with a commanding gesture toward St. Peter's Basilica. This was, after the destruction of the Papal States in 1870, the celebration of the Lodge's triumph over the Church.
The sinister entrance to Villa Vascello
With the equinox the lodges return to their work after the summer break. But above all, is celebrated the destruction of the Papal States and the conquest of Rome   by Italian troops the following day. A few years ago the head of a  noble family loyal to Rome handed the papal flag that flew on the Porta Pia and an ancestor had obtained it in time to prevent it from falling into enemy hands. It was kept in the family until they solemnly presented it to Benedict XVI.  
Grandmaster Bisi  also layed a wreath in 2015  at Porta Pia  to commemorate the conquest of the city from the Pope which "was fundamental for the civilized development of our country" in his opinion. After more than 1,300 years,  the papal domination of the country  had emerged from a period of popular exile.
The Grand Orient also celebrates the 750th anniversary of Dante Alighieri on this occasion. The greatest poet of Italy had nothing to do with the lodges, but was a member of the imperial party of his time. This anti-papal attitude makes him a sympathetic figure for the lodge brothers.

Créteil: "A cathedral for the world of today"

"Planetary" church with hidden object game. Where is a tabernacle?What recognizable Christian symbols you find?
An addendum: The picture shows the new top of Notre Dame Cathedral of the Diocese of Créteil, a suffragan of Paris. "Une cathédrale pour le monde présent," is the self-congratulation of its "creator". It is to be dedicated  next September. "In France there are currently  Gothic and neo-Gothic churches being abandoned by the Masonic government," said Traditio Catholica, because the number of believers  is falling, the buildings are dilapidated and in any case usually belong to the state.
"Does Freemasonry need to fight a Church that can build such houses of worship, like the new Cathedral of Creteil, where verticality is turned upside down? Hardly," said Traditio Catholica. Nothing in this architecture leads up to God.Instead, the priest stands down as an entertainer, clearly visible to the entire audience in the stands.
"It is this Church style of Créteil, of San Giovanni Rotondo, from Fatima, where those Catholics, clergy and laity, who have embraced the humanistic teachings of Freemasonry  and accordingly consistently  scourge and humiliate the cultic and cultural singularity of 'their' Church. In any case,  kneeling before God is neither intended nor desired in Créteil. There is not a tabernacle in the nave and in general Christian symbols are not to be found.

Freemasonry in Italy and in Vatican costed a papacy, don't forget it.....when the BoR first appeared in the loggia = lodge, I shivered, even now when I see him.....

As I recall, the lodges inItaly were pleased and the present BofR got along well with them in his native land as well. The Church is infiltrated to the highest levels. We see primarily dissenters and heretics invited to sin-nods so that deck is stacked, like inArian days. May the Lord put a stop to this!

He should get along well seeing the's one of them (IMO..have to put this because no, I have no inside knowledge of this secret membership of this secret society). Run the picture again of the "hidden hand" sign flashed on the subway in the carefully orchestrated "I'm just a man of the people" photo.

The SNCF or the Metro wouldn't even fashion a station to look like the cathedral of Creteil, even if the architect called "retro." And humanitarian, labor, and animal cruelty laws would prohibit me from marching my circus through such a station.
